Places to take photos in Oklahoma City | Lake Hefner | Storytelling Engagement Photo Session


We got up at sunrise to shoot Gabbie and Spencer's engagement photos at Lake Hefner and I am obsessed with how dreamy they came out! Skyler came along with me to shoot video which made for a romantic elopement film as well! Allllllll the heart eyes! Check it out at the end of this post <3



Lake Hefner Engagement Photos


Lake Hefner is one of my favorite locations for engagement photos! As a photographer in Oklahoma City, it's a dream to shoot at. The lake and lighthouse really make for a romantic and dreamy background. Quite the vibe if I do say so myself! There are so many different places to take photos here, check them all out below!

If you park by Red Rock restaurant by Lake Hefner, you can walk out onto this pier to get a different prospective of the lighthouse, like the above photos. We got 2 completely different vibes by starting to the left of the lighthouse first and then driving over to take photos in front of it!

Shadows + Light | Moody Photography


It amazes me that all of these photos were taken within minutes of each other. By this time, the sun was starting to rise and we were able to play around with shadows a bit. I looveeee playing with light! So moody and fun!!



The Birds of Lake Hefner


Would you believe me if I told you I did not pay these birds as actors? I went to scope out the lighting the day before this epic engagement session, and I drove by this spot where I saw all of these birds. I immediately had a vision. I hoped that they were all there the next morning and when they were, I told Gabbie and Spencer to run towards them. My vision could not have been brought to life any better. These are probably some of my favorite images I've ever taken and I'm so so happy with how they turned out!

Down by the Lake


For the last location of the morning, we took a short walk down the path to a spot that is sentimental to Gabbie and Spencer. They come to Lake Hefner a lot to watch the sunset and hang out by the lake these trees. Only fitting that we do the same and take some of their engagements photos here. <3 They are just the coolest.

And to top it all off, a dreamy engagement film.


As always, Skyler showed out and produced a song unique to Gabbie and Spencer and created a beautiful engagement film for them! Check it out and let us know what you think! Which spot was your favorite!?


Gabby and Spencer are getting married on 4.20.2024 and we are so so excited for them!
